MADRESEH MULLAH ABDOLLAH
Located in the very beginning of the Great Bazaar, this seminary is one of the earliest in Esfahan. It was built in the time of Shah Abbas I for Mowlana Abdullah Shushtari, one of the most prominent theologians of that time. The layout of the madreseh is quite typical for Iranian religious structures. It includes a courtyard that is enclosed by two-story arcades of student's lodgings. The facades of the arcades are decorated with tile work. The inscription on the portal indicates the repairs completed at the directive of Fathali Shah Qajar in 1803.
